Items that are transmitted on the weekend or on a Holiday that exceeds the item limit or the daily limit are deemed eligible for review and will be credited on the next business day.

Q. How many checks can be submitted at a time?
A. Only one check can be submitted at a time.
Q. Is there a daily limit to the total deposit amount?
A. Yes, there are some limitations in regards to the amounts to be deposited.
Q. Can multiple deposits be submitted during one day?
A. Yes. However, there may be limitations in the total deposit balance that you may have.
Q. What do I do with the original check after depositing?
A. Write on the back of the check the words “Void” or DOLFCU Mobile Deposit” so that you don’t accidently try to deposit the item a second time. We recommend that you store the checks in a secure location for a period of at least 60 days, which allows you to refer to the original check if there are any issues with the image quality or returned checks. After that time, dispose of the checks in a secure manner.
Q. How do I know that my check was submitted for deposit?
A. You will get the message “Check Deposited Successfully”. If the item is in review, it would show “Pending”.
Q. I scanned a check, and then I received an email instructing me to bring the check into a branch office. Why?
A. The scanned check was outside the criteria for your account. There can be various reasons for this, but generally it would be due to the check being illegible. Therefore, the check should be brought to one of our branches.
Q. The amount I entered for a deposit is different from the amount I got credit for. Why?
A. After reviewing the deposited item, it was determined that the amount entered was different from the legal amount on the check. You should refer to the image on your history page in your Mobile Deposit to verify this information. If you still have a question, email us at MemberServices@DOLFCU.org or call us at 202-789-2901.
Q. My transaction says “complete,” but I don’t have a credit in my account. Why?
A. Throughout the business day, you can confirm your online deposits by going to the History page in Remote Deposit. “Complete” in the Remote Deposit history indicates that the Credit Union’s review of the item has been completed. However, the item may be a part of the batch file that has not yet been posted to your account. It could take up to 15 minutes to actually post into your account. Deposits that have been posted will be in the Transaction History on your Remote Deposit Online Banking checking account page.
Q. Is this system secure?
A. Yes. It is web-based, with 128-bit encryption and secure hosting which means that your transmissions are guarded and the deposits are protected.
